A modern reading room equipped with computer access ports at the reading room tables and digital reader printers offers researchers a wealth of primary, microfilm and published sources for genealogical research.

I was at the geocaching L&A event. The museum was opened to us. What a terrific place. I enjoyed looking all through it. A "must see" for families. So much to see & learn.

This museum used to be a prison. We were greeted by beautiful flowers. We didn’t have to pay, as it was free on the day we arrived, a bonus!

There was a library where we could explore, all about this town.

I enjoyed the display about money. We learned about the polymer and how great this is. We even found how to detect fake money.

They also covered clothing from the past two centuries.

It covered the battle of Waterloo and the war of 1812. There were lots of local artifacts. This helped me understand the people who are living here.

My wife ended in a prison cell, just for fun. She could free herself without any problems.

Outside there were more info about people who worked in the olden days.

This is worthwhile to visit this historic museum!

well worth checking out

The caretakers were so friendly, they change the displays so you do not see the same thing year after year. It is well worth the stop in Napanee to see all the different displays. The overall appearance was spotless and just a nice place to stop at on a raining day .There are displays for all ages to enjoy, my family is from Napanee and I find the displays very well done and tastefull.

High Quality Museum and Archive
Jun. 2017 • Friends
We were in the area for family history research. We went through the museum first. The museum was top quality, and we learned a lot about the area. Then, on to the archive. The staff was very nice and very helpful. The archive curator, Kim, was so eager to help. She answered all of our questions, and was patient. The archive library itself is well organized, and easy to use.
